ICC Note: Christians in Sudan continue to be scrutinized, censored and oppressed by the government. Unfortunately, many pastors are wrongfully accused, punished, and sent to prison without any real evidence of their wrongdoings. The authorities also censor many church properties and events, preventing Christians to freely exercises their freedom of religion.
12/18/2017 South Sudan (Morning Star) – An Islamist judge in Sudan upheld the eviction of two pastors from their church-owned homes while 60 other Christians have been summoned to court over their refusal to relinquish property, sources said.
Judge Adam Tahir Haj Adam on Dec. 3 rejected an appeal of the Aug. 15 eviction of the Rev. Yahia Abdelrahim Nalu, Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SPEC) moderator, and the Rev. Sidiq Abdalla, a SPEC pastor, from their homes. In what Christians in Sudan believe is a campaign to take over church property, Adam ruled that Muslim businessman Hisham Hamad Al-Neel should take over the houses.
